Screen Shot 2020-05-17 at 2.03.01 PM.png

Emily Graham is a composer based in Ann Arbor, MI with a love for all things classical, pop, rock, and electronic. Emily received her Bachelors degree in Composition from Syracuse University, where she studied with Dr. Nic Scherzinger, Dr. Texu Kim, Dr. Natalie Draper, and Dr. Loren Loiacono. She is currently pursuing her Masters degree in Composition at the University of Michigan. Her portfolio includes works for voice, solo instruments, chamber ensembles, and large ensembles, and several film scores. Emily seeks to break down the barriers between acoustic, electronic, and visual media composition.

As a composer, Emily's main passion is to create evocative conceptual and programmatic music. Her friends and colleagues have called her music expressive, unique, and melodically-driven, and have compared her music to the likes of Howard Shore. Emily seeks to create a career writing both concert and film music - she is always working to further expand her knowledge of both modern music and music history in order to emulate and experiment with different styles and genres.

Most notably, Emily’s Trombone Concerto titled “The Titanomachy” had its world premiere at the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in 2022. The work was performed by Sasha Romero, principal trombonist for the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
